Since I installated a lot (more than 100) applications on my phone (a lot on the SD card), I'm experimenting a big problem : When I start my phone, it takes between 4 minutes, one hour, one night or never before loading the applications installated on the SD card.
The SD card is answering and I can browse it whereas applications aren't loaded.
Sometimes the 4 hardware keys are not lighted when I'm using the phone ! I don't know if it is connected with my problem.
The applications installated on the SD card for which I created a shortcut on the desktop cannot be launched and the phone tells me that these apps aren't installated anymore on the phone, but some hours later it works ! But I can always use applications installated in the internal memory of the phone. Moreover, I can't install or uninstall any application through the market / through my phone.
I set the phone to "pm setInstallLocation 2" to allow more applications to be stored on the SD card. My phone isn't rooted. I didn't installated any widget or alarm on the sd card and when I did, I moved it back to the internal memory of the phone.
I know that I installated a lot of applications to test it but I will not keep some of them and I think that testing like I did shouldn't be a problem and now I don't know what to do. If you don't see any solution, I will have to make a factory reset but will this automatically remove some stuffs on my SD card ? For example, I unistalled some days ago the app "Layar" and I still see a folder called "layar" on my sd card so I'm wondering if I wouldn't have to remove some stuffs manually after the phone reset to be sure that I will restart on good bases.
For example, can I just remove everything that is stored on my SD card just after/before the factory reset ? What should I do ?
Moreover, since I can't install/uninstall (nor move an app on the sd card nor on the phone) any app, maybe that I will not be able to reset the phone, I never tried it. How long should take the reset ?
Finally, how could I save my already downloaded apk apps to not have to download it again after reseting my phone ?
